An Insider's view of Brex

What's something quirky about your company?

We have employees from over 30 countries. We celebrate this by displaying flags around the office or celebrating international holidays. My coworkers have fascinating stories and unique world views. We see it as a point of pride and an asset. Plus we understand immigration policies better than your average startup which opens up our candidate pool.

Elena

Engineering Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Platform teams aim at being the multiplier for Brex products. One big problem we work on is a flexible underwriting platform to power different products and verticals. It allows us to cater to unique customer credit needs based on data availability, risk model and business characteristics, which in turn accelerates new product and vertical launch.
